I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, advised by Prof. Tajana Simunic Rosing at the System Energy Efficiency Lab (SEELab). After receiving B.S./M.S. degrees from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, I worked for several years at a start up developing technology to help detect mild traumatic brain injury in soldier and atheletes (B3 Inc).

I am actively working on privacy mechanisms for resource constrained devices and interested in applying machine learning to healthcare applications under privacy constraints. I am also involved with developing an air quality sensing platform, creating exciting demos for aerial drone applications, and mentoring undergraduate students.

In addition to developing engineering skills and a depth of knowledge, I hope to create a better sense of community and stronger teams wherever I go and am heavily involved with the Graduate Student Association, the governing body for graduate students at UCSD, and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Council.
